Youth Programs

We are in the planning process for Dragonfest 2018 Rituals and will post that program here once it is finalized. In the meantime, take a look at our Rituals from last year’s program to get an idea of what might be in store.

Youthfest – Youthfest focuses on the education of the Dragonfest youth. They will be learning about pottery, gardening, recycling, fairies, and MORE! And don’t forget the nature walk and the children’s parade through merchant’s row! There’s lots to learn and explore this year at Youthfest. We have lots on the schedule, and there will be snacks every day, plus extra crafts too! Looking forward to seeing you there.

As usual, at least one parent must sign up for an extra workshift in Youthfest if their children participate. Our Workshop Presenters will need helpers; this way our children will have more fun as well!
